Include free body diagrams and equations solved independently for acceleration and tension. Note: a and T are to be expressed in terms of m1, m2, and g only.
Trial 1:Mass1= 55g and Mass2= 60g
Trial 2:Mass1= 55g and Mass2= 65g
We are doing 2 trials but i need help with the first one. I'm not sure how to figure out the acceleration and theoretical acceleration, should they be coming out the same?
The Attempt at a Solution
Trial 1: A=((60-55)/(60+55))*9.8 = (5/115)*9.8 = 0.426m/s/s
Ath=9.8*((60-55)/(60+55)) = 9.8*(5/115) = 0.4260m/s/s
T=(2*55*60/55+60)9.8 = (6600/115)*9.8 = 562.43N
